  • Angelo’s Dark - One of the Best!

    I have many Mt. Etna types and this seems like one except the figs are darker inside and out and this has a more complex and more intense berry. This fig is superb.
    I hope to get some RLBV and Sangue Dolce to compare all together later this week. I’ll make sure to post a comparison review. Maybe a video. :-)

    Bluemalibu is the one who recommended this to me and I am soooo glad I trusted him. Thank you, Doug!!!

              Do we know anything about it? Place of origin?

                Good question. I don’t know the history. Maybe TorontoJoe knows?

                I have it but it came to me via an OF member. I don't know its origin but I know accounts of it that go back to F4F in 2014

                If memory serves it was introduced by Vito in NY state. I think it was his brother's favorite tree. The variety comes from a town outside of Palermo in Sicily.

                Ugh, so good. Another for the list. Would love a comparison video of some of the Mt Etna types!

                    That first picture looks exactly like my RLBV - though mine will never be this juicy. I can see the similarities now.

                      RLBV is quite a bit larger than Mt. Etna types. I don’t personally classify it as a Mt. Etna but it is similar. Superior though

                    Kinda looks like a San donato di ninea fig. I wonder if it’s the same.

                      Damn! Hope it didn’t affect all your trees. First time I’ve heard of this.

                    I got 2 a few days ago from my 2nd year plant. It was good, nice strawberry aftertaste for me. Thanks fighobo-1
